If you have a damaged tooth, your dentist will try to save it using dental treatments such as root canals, crowns, or fillings. However, if the damage is severe, extraction of the tooth may be necessary. Only a dentist or specialist can determine if a tooth needs to be removed. During the first appointment, the dentist will examine your teeth and mouth and recommend the best treatment option. Good oral hygiene practices and regular dental visits can often prevent the need for tooth extraction.

Here’s what you need to know about dental appointments:
– Typically, at least two appointments are required.
– During the first consultation, your dentist will examine your teeth.
– During the second appointment, your tooth or teeth will be extracted. This could take place at the dentists office or at an oral surgery clinic.
– Additional appointments may be necessary if you experience any complications or issues after the extraction.

Here’s how long the process takes:
– The consultation usually lasts around 30 minutes.
– The extraction usually takes between 60 and 90 minutes.

During the consultation, your dentist may ask you about:
– Your dental history.
– Medical background.
– Any medications you are taking.
– Your daily oral care routine at home.

Before your appointment, you wont need any special preparation, but you should have information on hand about your dental
and medical history.

After your appointment, if you have had any wisdom teeth extraction procedure done, you should:
– Use ice packs as much as possible to prevent swelling during the first 48 hours.
– Do not rinse your mouth out on the day of the surgery as it will cause bleeding.
– Do not smoke for as long as possible after surgery.
– Be careful with hot food and drinks.
– Eat a soft food diet.
– On the day after the removal, rinse three times a day after meals with warm, salty water.
– Use Savacol mouthwash from the following day, morning, and night.
